Second Alpha makes secondary investments in private companies, purchasing shares from existing shareholders – founders, executives, angels, VCs or corporate investors. In addition, the firm invests capital directly in private companies that meet its investment criteria, usually in tandem with making secondary purchases of shares from existing investors, but also in situations involving debt conversions, restructurings, recapitalizations or pay-to-play financings.
